Subject: Not bad, but not the previousd night
I was at both of these Chicago shows (the 25th and 26th). After 6 years, I went back and listened to both of them to see what was what.

This night is okay. It's not sucky, it's not outstanding. A decent night for a good band. There are definitely some miscues, and I do confess that while Chris Robinson can sing the old Pigpen tunes stronger than ANYBODY ELSE I've ever heard, his leaning heavily on the teleprompter still bugs me. Here Comes Sunshine, Cumberland, Hurricane and Caution with Big Brown were real standouts. The rest was okay, but felt uninspired. Perhaps they were tired after the previous night's fireworks.

Overall, I give it three stars. It was a nice enough evening, but about half of the set lacked passion. If you want the real deal from Chicago 2005, grab the previous evening's show; they delivered it so much on the 25th, listening to the crowd shower him with love before he begin his Donor Rap gives me goosebumps.

I wish Phil would release the DSBD of the 25th, even 6 years after the fact. It's a hell of a show.

My brother and I drove 18 hours for this show only and what a show! Tumdle weed was nice for my fist time.The Golden Road really left us wanting more.The second set was ON from beginning till end. Hurricaine was NAILED!!!!! Better than the on we seen in Virginia.

Subject: hurricane
The hurricane was amazing, chris nailed it and so did the rest of the band. The night was great too, definetly worth the cumberland blues and bertha, not to mention the eight miles high and a great Loser, don't believe the naysayers that just wish "their show" was available for free. thanks phil!
Reviewer: 2001 - - December 22, 2005
Subject: Why this night?
In my opinion this show was by far weaker then the previous night. Definetly some highlights, but Viola Lee> Help> Slip> Frank E: US Blues was some of the best music i have ever seen live.

Please Phil Release 11/25. It would be an amazing Xmas gift for me

Reviewer: spinyn - - December 21, 2005
Subject: oh yes, it's a soundboard
Don't see how this wouldn't be recognized as a soundboard recording. Sounds like the other two Phil has released for free from this tour to me. I like this band a lot and wish they were playing on NYE in SF.

Once again, Phil shows who is the man by giving away the music. Rock on, bro!
Reviewer: CoreyA - - December 21, 2005
Subject: Bittersweet
I believe the show I attended, 11-23, was the best of the tour. However both at that show for which I was present, and the rest of the tour that I have downloaded, it seems like Larry goes through the motion. The dude has chops but he needs to learn the songs.
Reviewer: David WNY - - December 21, 2005
Subject: Soundboard?
Golden Road and Hurricane were real highlights on this. Is this really a soundboard? It sounds an awful lot like Jeff Travitz (very admirable) recording. There is a lot of audience in the mix.
This has the "inside the tin can" quality that is more prone to an audience mic recording. It is not as clear as the NJPAC DSBD's

Subject: ...floating through the clouds one day...
This set-list is one of which I only used to dream. It's great to hear all of these tunes played with so much emotion. Great jams... rock on, Phil!
Reviewer: Pat H - - December 17, 2005
Subject: GREAT!
Wow! Thank you Phil! This was the only show I was able to catch from the fall tour, but man it was smoking. The second set blew my mind and I think this is my favorite lineup of musicians Phil has had. It's definitely a sbd recording and sounds great. Tons of energy from the band and killer playing as well. Phil is *the* man.
